Walks Around Oxford

 'The Bridge of Sighs' connects buildings in Hertford College.
 Beautiful floors in the chapel in St. John's College.
Oh, Blackwells, you are one of the greatest bookshops. Four floors of books! I spent hours in here on a rainy day, and then came back a week later just to browse, and found another book!
 Inside the Ashmolean Museum. The Ashmolean is a large art and archaeology museum definitely worth a visit. It's free! The large painting straight ahead was my favourite. It is Jerusalem by Edward Lear.
 Inside St. Edmund's Hall. That is an ancient well in the centre. 
Walking down St. Giles to The Eagle and Child and Oxfam bookshop.
The gowns (of fellows and professors) are walking to the Sheldonian for an awards ceremony. They are walking through the Bodleian Library old quadrangle.
A favourite path of mine, Brasenose Lane. Going from Radcliffe Sqaure to Turl Street.
Same street, except it's gone back in time for filming being done that day.
I went to church on Sunday here, to St. Ebbes. It was packed. The people were so very friendly.
 I ate here, at The Kings Arms, yesterday for lunch. I know I sound like a C.S. Lewis broken record, but this is one of the pubs that he and The Inklings came to when The Eagle and Child ran out of beer during WWII.
The walkway between Merton College and Corpus Christi College heading toward Christ Church Meadow. A lovely little cut-through.
Another neat cut-through is Logic Lane. Because of course it makes logical sense to place a tiny path through University College from High Street to Merton Street. Duh.
